Make sure you have the RIGHT NUTS... even if you know they are TORQUED properly... doesn't mean they will stay that way if they are not the correct ones.

Lucky for me- I missed my road, pulled over to the side, and it fell off...
but note; I was doing 60+ all day sideways drifting and bombing dirt roads rally style....Praise GOD he was watching me that day !

MUDNTRUCK - how if your "FREERUNNER" project sketching out ?

I need to come get my parts, maybe June 7 ?

Poor truck has been sitting since the trans went out, GOMI is getting rusty - sad to say I have been way to busy this summer to even work on it.

I need to get it back in the garage to pull the trans, and sort out some items...
Maybe I'll take it over and Ryan @ Lengerracing.com so we can get the long travel sorted. Ryan builds some of the sickest Long Travel jumping Rangers - and RallyCars.

Cool build. I myself will be starting a long travel ranger this winter. Everything will be new to me including welding LOL. It will also be a low budget build. I do already have the front long travel beams and some fabtec springs for the rear. I Cant wait to get started on it. What year is the toyota you got? I have a 90 parts truck here with a ton of parts. And a good auto trans,tcase, interior,and rolling chassis if you are interested.

Default GOMI heads home to Boyne with Dad



Well, bad and good news.
Gomi left my garage today to head to its new home with my Dad.
we need to put in the new clutch and IC regulator...

We were looking forward to DogParty - but it will have to wait until time is more available. there is always next year.

The space in the garage will allow for some higher priority projects, and the LONG TRAVEL IFS arm project.

I have a custom designed LT kit that I'm working on ( like a blazeland kit )
It got back burner - but I'm connecting with LENGERRACING.COM here in GR to get it back up to speed.



He is pretty serious about high-flying dune trucks.... and one of the best fab shops around !

These Ranger guys are killn Silver Lake Dunes and getting a reputation with Dezert Ranger guys on the westcoast
